Website of various Nevada geothermal resource information, which contains 227 geothermal site descriptions and related digital maps, photographs, and information sources. Geothermal Resources of Nevada Two NBMG geologists spend part of their time keeping up this database. Aside from the list of 227 geothermal sites which are linked to site descriptions and maps, the website also contains an interactive map based on NBMG Map 141, "Nevada Geothermal Resources," which shows locations of all significant occurrences of geothermal water in Nevada of which more than 300 are linked to site descriptions and/or databases accessed by mouse clicks; links to the files used to create the interactive map; a list linked to 82...

The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) Mining District Files (also known as NVGEODEX) is a collection containing about 27,000 items consisting of about 150,000 pages of correspondence, reports, maps, assays, datasets, photographs, newspaper clippings, journal articles, company reports, and government publications. The media is paper, linen, vellum, mylar, cardboard, microfilm and fiche, and photographic paper. This database is the electronic index of the entire collection which includes links to the most of the material that was scanned through 12/31/2015. Most of the items were scanned as TIFs and converted to PDFs for internet availability. Access is through the NBMG main website at http://www.nbmg.unr.edu,...

Paper files for 1061 entries for oil and gas well files whether drilled or not. The files are filed by: 1) dry hole or producer; 2) county; 3) operator; 4) well; 5) well file or log file. The files are copies of documents required to be turned in to the Nevada Division of Minerals, which is the main state regulatory agency for petroleum exploration. Also, the NBMG has some many files that predate 1954 when the state took over permitting. The files contain permits, sundry notices, logs, geology reports, scout cards, drill stem tests, and other items. Many of the drilled wells have cuttings that are described as a separate collection. About 670 files contain some kind of log, the electric logs of which are filed in...

Paper files for 1058 entries for geothermal well files whether drilled or not. Some files are for "Project Areas", which contain a number of proposed wells that are later individually repermitted. The files are filed by: 1) a code tied to NBMG Bulletin 91, "Thermal Waters of Nevada"; and 2) permit or related number. The files are copies of documents required to be turned in to the Nevada Division of Minerals, which is the main state regulatory agency for geothermal exploration. Also, the NBMG has some many files that predate 1985 when Nevada Division of Minerals took over permitting from the Nevada Division of Water Resources. The files contain permits, sundry notices, logs, geology reports, scout cards, water analyses,...

Collection of open-file reports and other publications mostly from the U. S. Geological Survey, Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, Nevada Division of Minerals, Nevada Division of Water Resources, Nevada Mine Safety and Training, U. S. Bureau of Land Management, U. S. Bureau of Mines, U. S. Dept. of Energy, and other organizations. The engineering files were entered as part of this Inventory Project. The items are generally sorted by topic or publication series and range in size from one page or map to hundreds of pages with many large maps. Open-File Report Collection Though the collection is adequately stored for present usage, the files are paper and are slowly degrading with use. The U. S. Geological Survey...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
